Ghostly Encounter V rescheduled for October 17th

Back by popular demand, some of “residents” of Wakeman Cemetery will return to join us live on Wednesday, October 17, 6:30 PM for a fifth year of “Ghostly Encounters.”  You will be introduced to some famous Waterville residents who reside right there in the cemetery and come alive on this one night to share their stories with us. They are a varied bunch with tragedy and comedy in equal measure, but always an interesting side to our city and its origins.

Bring a lawn chair to sit on & a blanket to ward off chills! Our stage will consist of a grassy, relatively level and grave marker-free area. In case of inclement weather, come to the Wakeman Hall, 401 Farnsworth Road at 7:00 p.m. Thanks to the Waterville Gas & Oil Company for allowing free parking in their lot across the street. Refreshments served at Wakeman Hall, 401 Farnsworth, after the presentation.
